WORDS ARE POWER

At the dawn of the third decade of the 21st century, the existence of humankind has become highly perilous. We are cutting down our forests, exhausting our fresh water aquifers, and losing our vital top soils. We are stripping the life from our oceans and replacing it with hundreds of millions of tons of plastic waste. We are flooding our environment with toxic industrial chemicals. Our pollution is driving climate change that causes heat waves, droughts, and wildfires that shred the fabric of life on the continents. And we are bringing new generations into the world, millions who require acc ..read more

THE HEART OF THE COSMOS
Alexis Karpouzos

If I make a scientific inquiry into my body, I first find it is made of matter, like rocks and trees and rivers. As I look closer, I see that the matter of my body is animated, that it is alive. The source of this life is the energy from metabolism of food and drink that I consume, which is burning in me during respiration as I breathe. If I trace this energy, I see it comes from the plants and animals that I eat, and if I trace it further, I see that it comes from photosynthesis, which comes from the sun. Thus, I come to realize that every movement of my body is powered by sunlight. And I be ..read more

We know that  a  transformation  of  global dimensions has already started, and we know that its unfolding is not predictable. We can be certain that it will be challenging: we will live in the midst of profound change, our very survival will be  constantly  at  stake.  Will  we  achieve  the  understanding,  the  wisdom,  to  survive  this challenge? Here are a few thoughts and considerations that help us reach the condition where we can give a positive answer.          ..read more

WHAT IS THE INVISIBLE INTELLIGENCE?
Alexis Karpouzos
by alexiskarpouzos
2y ago
Embracing our oneness with nature be key to our survival. The unity is the invisible Intelligence and is embedded in the rhythms and relationships that observed in nature, we are the work of this cosmic intelligence. What is good for the whole system? On Earth, to the web of life on the planet, what is good for the whole system is good for us all. However, what may be good for a few of us in the short term is not necessarily good for the whole system. Because a few can distort the dynamic, the structure of the whole, by biasing it to work for their immediate benefit, for greed, selfishness an ..read more

DISSOLUTION OR UNITY
Alexis Karpouzos
by alexiskarpouzos
2y ago
I am part of nature, and nature is part of me. I am what I am in my communication and communion with all living things. I am an irreducible and coherent whole with the web of life on the planet. Nature, the human community and the universe is connected with the Cosmos. We recognize the deep truth that I am the other. This expresses the concept from contemporary physics of “entanglement”, which is a quantum phenomenon. All atoms, all cells are connected, deeply.” The friendship is the connection we feel for each other, wherever he is, other people, animals, plants, stars. I am part of society ..read more

THE MATHEMATICS OF IMAGINATION
Alexis Karpouzos

“Logic will get you from A to B imagination will take you everywhere” Einstein. As Kurt Gödel showed, can be classified in absolutely no Formal Axiomatic System, no matter how advanced that system is. They cannot be formal; they are by default informal (non typical). The logical assumption is then, that there cannot be a (formal) mathematical theory. Therefore, the nature of genuine mathematics is not objectively “mathematical”. Namely, it is not governed by the logic of set theory. The logic of the set theory is governed by the principle of identity, the principle of non-contradiction, while ..read more

MATHEMATICS OF THE ABYSS
Alexis Karpouzos
by alexiskarpouzos

Leibniz in his work “Principles de la nature et de la grace’’ formulates the most primordial question of metaphysics: “Why does there exist something but not nothing?” This question is connected to the “principle of sufficient reason” and urges to the search for a cause or a foundation that affirms the existence of beings. This search ends to the highest being: God. Heidegger separates nothing / zero from beings, the Being emerges from this difference between zero and beings. This difference reminds to the man his mortality and because of that it constitutes the cause of the existential angst ..read more

THE END OF CERTAINTY
Alexis Karpouzos

CHAOS, COMPLEXITY AND SELF-ORGANIZED SYSTEMS  The Newtonian mechanics was the model of classical science. In the classical science all the natural laws had an absolutely deterministic and descriptive character and defined the course and development of every phenomenon. The knowledge of these laws assured the human – observer the ability to understand not only the present but also the past and the future. In a deterministic and timeless universe, the arrow of time is nothing but a human illusion. Only the vision of the universe from the perspective of eternity ensures the truth of physica ..read more

DISPERSING STRUCTURES
Alexis Karpouzos
by alexiskarpouzos
2y ago
According to the second law of thermodynamics, in an isolated system (i.e. which does not exchange matter and energy with its environment), the total entropy increases progressively, while the free energy decreases until the system reaches the equilibrium state, when its entropy acquires its maximum value. In thermodynamic equilibrium state, the system is homogeneous and idle. If we also suppose, as Clausius did, that the whole universe is an isolated system of gigantic dimensions, then, according to the second law, the progressive degradation of the energy, i.e. the maximization of entropy i ..read more

BIFURCATION – WINDOW OF DIVIDED ROUTES
Alexis Karpouzos
by alexiskarpouzos
2y ago
An important factor in the emergence of new structures is the contribution of fluctuations or disruptions, namely of sudden illusions that allow something new to appear, even there where the existence of entropy would exclude it. This happens because the dispersion structures are non linear systems, the order of which emerges from chaos. If we add only one fluctuation to other fluctuations, then this fluctuation will become so strong that it will manage to organize the whole system under a new model. These points are called by Prigogine Bifurcation points and they are points at which the dete ..read more
